Vintage Service Foreman and Lead Technician
Jeff Adams has been working on vintage Porsches since high school in 1987, and received his Bachelors Degree in Business Management from the University of Connecticut. Before joining Speedsport Tuning in 2009, Jeff worked in other independent shops and was a lead technician at a large Porsche dealership during Porsche’s transition from air-cooled to water-cooled 911s (993 to 996).
Jeff is one of a handful of Porsche technicians in North America who can rebuild rare Porsche 4-cam engines. Jeff apprenticed alongside first-generation 356 dealer Gerry McCarthy who taught him the intricacies of early Porsches including all aspects of chassis work and the fine art of building air-cooled engines. Today, Jeff’s reputation is known throughout the Porsche collector world and his talents are highly sought after. Vintage Porsche owners across the US send their cars to Speedsport due in no small part to Jeff’s skill and expertise. Often parts are no longer available for some of these rare cars and Jeff has developed a network of fabricators, craftsmen and suppliers who can reproduce the original parts.
Jeff is also a Porsche enthusiast, having owned and daily-driven numerous air-cooled Porsches himself, ranging from early 356s to later model 911s.
